fox-tactical-medium-transport-pack-4Need an gift idea for him? Every guy needs a heavy duty back pack. Whether or not he is going on crazy even dangerous adventures, going camping for the weekend, or just taking a small trip, he can definitely make great use of a Fox Tactical Medium Transport Pack. This backpack is actually amazing. it can safely hold so many different things. You would think guys don’t bring that much stuff when they are traveling, but you would be surprised. If he isn’t totally into camo there is an all black option too. I don’t know any guy that wouldn’t want a great quality backpack for traveling.

Voodoo Tactile Backpacks for the Adventurer in your Life

My family is rather adventurous. We do a lot of camping, hunting, four-wheeling, back-packing, hiking, fishing, you name it. We like to be out doors exploring and going on adventures. When living an active lifestyle such as that there are definitely risks you don’t encounter in a more city type of life. I found these great voodoo tactical backpacks and have been giving them to my family as birthday gifts. I pack them up with a few essentials and then they can customize with the different types of ammo and other supplies they rely on.

Typically I pack a few hand, foot, and body warmers, flash light, some energy snacks with a long shelf life. a couple of signal flares, candles and all weather matches, a lighter, sunblock and chapstick, hand sanitizer and dental floss. Dental floss has many uses, first of all if you are ever trapped you should floss your teeth to prevent any infection from food stuck in between but you can also use it for fishing line and tying things in place if you need to make a shelter for a night. The best things to pack in a voodoo tactile backpack are ones that have more than one purpose. A first aid kit is essential, that goes in first. We all keep these packs in our vehicles and next year I will work on one for the home too.

Dad’s Gonna Love Tactical Scopes for ar-15

ncstar-scope-combo-special-operations-combo-3I found the perfect gift for my father. He is an avid gun collector and he just loves to shoot anything. He has quite the collection of guns, swords, and knives. When I found these tactical scopes for ar-15 I came across something just for him. I know he is going to love them. It has been awhile since I have found just the perfect gift for him. He is getting a little older so I think a scope will really be nice because he will be able to see his target easier.

When I was young my father taught me how to shoot and we have been spending time together target shooting ever since. It is a great way for us to spend an afternoon catching up. Just him and I will plan a day to hang out, clean our guns, have a friendly little competition. My favorite part is probably the conversations, we have the best conversations about life. We get caught up on what is going on in each others lives. We tell each other some things I don’t think anyone else knows about us. It is very special time we both look forward to. I am excited to give him this scope and plan out next outing.


One of my Favorite Gifts

imagesWhether it is giving or receiving one of my very favorite gifts are water bottles. I carry one with me everywhere and that ensures I take in enough water everyday.  Often people hear to drink eight 8 ounce glasses of water per day, although this is close to the recommended amount it does vary from body size, age, sex, and activity level.


These are the recommended amounts according to Mayo Clinic:

So how much fluid does the average, healthy adult living in a temperate climate need? The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day. The AI for women is 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day.


I find that water is the most refreshing drink for me. I drink lots when I exercise, when I go to bed at night I bring my trusty water bottle along side my bed and I drink some during the night and when I get out of bed I drink a bunch in the morning straight away. My favorite water bottle is an insulated Thermos bottle without a straw. The popular straw ones are nice but difficult to clean, once they get moldy they need to be replaced. Another thing about the straw is that I think wrinkles happen more easily from using a straw so often similar to a smokers lips. A great way to encourage drinking more water for a loved one is to give them a really nice water bottle, they will love it!



Baseball Sports Cards for the Sports Fan

Need a quick gift for a sports  fan in your life? Baseball sports cards are a great solution. Baseball cards have been around since 1860 when both baseball and photography were gaining popularity. Since then there are a wide variety of cards out there in all price ranges. If you need a rare card of a specific player and money is no object you will have lots of fun searching through the possibilities and researching the history of the card.  There are so many baseball sports cards to choose from.Wouldn’t it be neat to surprise a relative with a card of their favorite player from their birth year or another significant year?


Children love them too, they love collecting anything really. It is fun to get a child baseball cards of their favorite players to collect. The little sports fans also love baseball hats. When my kids get invited to a birthday party we will give a hat and fill the hat with some baseball cards and a baseball. That gift is a hit at parties. The same theme can be carried out with the seasons and different sports. In the fall give a football, gloves, and football trading cards from their favorite team. In the winter Basketballs, a sweat band for t-shirt and basketball cards. Sports trading cards can be a part of a gift or the main gift and they are appreciated by most everyone who enjoys sports.
